IN TRANSIT

diego kuffer transit series

These days when I travel I take somewhere close to 3000 photos – easy. My rapid fire strategy probably suggests I’m a super-enthused photographer. Which I am, but even more than that I’m desperately trying to slow down time. That’s why I became an instant fan of Diego Kuffer’s work. At its core, I relate with his motivation to enjoy the moment and hack time while hacking photography.

As he describes it, “When I was a kid, my father always said enjoy the moment. The idea stuck with me all these years, because it was a concept I didn’t seem to be able to grasp. Photography was a way that I found to capture a moment, in order to understand what it was and maybe find out how to enjoy it. After a while, I understood that photography only allowed me to capture instants – even a long exposure photo is only a blurred instant. So I decided to hack photography, getting the technic behind movie making and applying it to my photos. Photographing the same instant several times, slicing and dicing the results and mixing it all together chronologically.” Click Read More to view additional photos from Diego Kuffer.

COLOR BERLIN

We first reported on Matthias Heiderich’s photography when his Images from Berlin hit the interwebs. And, it goes without saying that we’re equally stunned with COLOR Berlin. The hyper contrasts and flat basic tones add the quiet creativity that’s become synonymous with the city. We have a sampling of his work from the Color Berlin set below.

JON NAAR

jon naar

In 1972 Jon Naar arrived in New York City where he began capturing a rebellious expression found in the city’s streets. To him, graffiti was a social-political phenomenon that needed to be documented. Its nascent stages communicated the exact energy that drew him to New York. It also uniquely represented the muse that fueled his photographic career. So when Jon’s book The Faith of Graffiti debuted, it was met with a lot of acclaim and criticism. But more importantly, however viewed, it sparked a necessary public conversation about whether graffiti is a respectable artform. In the following video shot by Stussy, Jon Naar discusses his journey shooting graffiti and how the art represents something special about New York City. Click Read More to view the view.
